'Arrow' star Bex Taylor-Klaus and others join MTV's 'Scream'

MTV’s Scream has been in the making for a while. It was first announced that the show had a pilot order in May of 2013, but it wasn’t until more than a year later that it finally found its cast and director. And now, there’s been a change to that cast.

EW has confirmed that Bex Taylor-Klaus, who plays Sin on The CW’s Arrow, will replace Amy Forsyth in the lead role of Audrey Jensen, who was originally described as “the daughter of a Lutheran pastor” and “an artsy loner who aspired to be a filmmaker.” There’s no word yet on why Forsyth left the television remake.

In additional casting news, the show has added Bobby Campo, Connor Weil, and Joel Gretsch. Campo will play Seth Branson, “the hot English teacher at Lakewood High” who’s “got an easy charm and is clearly one of the ‘cool’ teachers, who can go with it if a lesson plan gets a little off-track.” Weil will take on the role of Will Belmont, “an all-American high school basketball player who adores his girlfriend, Emma.” As for Gretsch, he’ll play Sheriff Clark Hudson, “good guy and good Sheriff and father to Kieran (Amadeus Serafini).”

'Devious Maids' star Colin Woodell joins 'The Originals'

With Hayley turning into a hybrid in the season one finale, the werewolves of New Orleans are down a key player. Correction: They were down a key player.

EW has confirmed that Devious Maids star Colin Woodell will recur in The Originals second season as Aiden, who’s described as “a badass lieutenant in the reigning New Orleans werewolf pack, loyal to his people first but willing to align with witches if it allows him the power he needs to take down vampires. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his family, even if that means forming dangerous alliances.” TVLine first reported the news.

When EW spoke with Originals executive producer Julie Plec after the season one finale, she mentioned that the wolves might be in need of a new leader come season two. “There’s a lot of wolves that Klaus was aligned with that were all looking to Hayley as their queen, but now she’s no longer a werewolf, she’s a hybrid, and there’s no love lost there for that species,” Plec said. “So they’re going to be kind of stranded without a leader, and we’re going to have to see who steps in and takes that role of alpha. Will it be Jackson? Will it be Oliver? Will Hayley be able to win her way back? What’s going to solidify these wolves in one group, or now that they’ve won the Quarter, are they going to start in-fighting as well?”

How Aiden fits in will be revealed when he first appears in episode four.

The Originals returns Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
